Great episode guys. I would like to ask some questions for the next episode:
1. Why E-Tags? Please remove it, it makes the game a non-socom game. I like to play with stealth. Most people don't like E-Tags. Perhaps you could put it in some Custom Games?
2. What are all the types of areas in the multiplayer maps. Jungle, Night, Street? No snow or death trap like levels?
My dear developers, I hate negativism but after listening all the things you are changing and implementing on SOCOM... it's frustating. I am sorry to say this because I imagine myself reading all these angry gamers mercilessly pouring their wrath in words, but after knowing the fact that there won't be demolition, no granade arch, no classic 3rd person view... it's not worth buying the game.
I just spoke to my budies, around 15 of us play SOCOM every saturday night and no one said anything good about the game. The feeling we have is SOCOM was never broke, so why try to fix it? By all means, we have to do the right thing, but these changes...
Literaly, I am cancelling my preorder at Game Stop.
Never thought I'd be back on these forums saying that I was looking forward a overhauled version of SOCOM, but after what we got from the last version everything about this version sounds great in comparison... except:
01. Please explain what was the reason behind no pistols other than to support two primaries?
How could you guys get the snipe/shotty concept but not get the Pistols Only one?
02. Please tell me that we have the ability to cancel the TTT (tap to talk) function with a second tap.
If so, great - good thinking. Hopefully there is an icon on all screens while it's active too right?
Zipper has done a great job of addressing (or sounding like it so far anyway) some major issues of the past, but I just can't believe the flaw in judgment in removing pistols. They played a major part of SOCOM for so many people.
Hopefully S4 is good enough to make me look forward to S5 and their (pistols) potential return.
I think everything what they said is very exciting because it's something new and different. I know all of you so called "vets" want the game to stay with their old roots. But really? It's best that's something new. You'll be even more excited about it. If it was something old then you know how it's going to be like. The truth of matter is, for everyone who is bashing it, really has no life being on this forum 24-7 just to bash the damn game that you play all day everyday and still going to buy Socom 4. Stop tripping about it. They really don't need listen to our feedback, but this a company(Zipper) that has inegrity. I'm looking forward to the came. Counting down actually hahahaha. April 19th.!!!
XP, gimmes, perks, pickups, silly-azzed game modes... respawn "tactics"? You guys were dodging bullies on the playground when S1 came out, right? You wouldn't know the draw of the game if it bit you in the azz.
Even with your "classic mode", looks like you've alienated thousands of older players that are every bit as much of the future of your market as little Billy and mic-screamers. Wanna play the S4 BETA? Gotta buy KILLZONE3. Gimmick after gimmick. You guys are reminiscent of "Sea Monkey" companies in the backs of old comic books.
I really admired your guts with Community Day and hoped that it was done to dispel the fears of the legions of SOCOM followers. It looks like all that Community Day did was reaffirm the changes that we were all afraid you guys were going to make. Saved me $65 though.
I think you should really remove the E-Tagging thing, say all your teammates die and stuff and its like 5 on 1 or something what the hell are you gonna do nothing but maybe get one or two guys or.... just get owned cause you have a VERY slim chance for survival... also i would really want to have lobbies back so i can actually play with people i know and form am clan or something if i wanted to play this match making thing i would just go play COD. i dont really care to much about the pistols might miss it a little but still.. and i really dont like the idea of this cover system its just not SOCOM. and i also agree that you should make classic mode CLASSIC. ive played every socom since it first came out.. and i just dont know if its gonna feel like SOCOM anymore.... i just want that SOCOM feeling again
PS: i really, really, really, REALLY think you should get rid of the E-Tags, i think they are just gonna be stupid and suck really bad in certain situation and really limits the point of having tatical skills and knowlege to kill your enemys with. cause there gonna KNOW where you are.
please atleast add lobbies and atleast take off the E-Tags..
Thanks for listening..
